ABOUT

Michigan Tech Music, part of the Michigan Tech Visual and Performing Arts Department, offers ten music performance groups: bands, orchestra, jazz, and choral ensembles that expose students, faculty, and the community to the artistic and communicative values of music and the power it has to change lives.

Founded in 1971, the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra is the Upper Peninsula’s oldest orchestra and one of five symphony orchestras in the Lake Superior region. The KSO is a college-community ensemble composed of Michigan Tech students, faculty and staff, and community musicians. The orchestra presents four to five concerts per year—including orchestral masterworks, choral-orchestral, music theatre, ballet, opera, and pops—in the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts.

Joel Neves
enjoys a dynamic and versatile career as an opera, ballet, and orchestra conductor and educator. A prizewinner in the American Prize in Conducting, Joel is Director of Orchestral Activities at Michigan Tech, where he conducts the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra. Joel served as national President of the College Orchestra Directors Association (CODA). During his term of service, he made a special focus on repertoire for college orchestras, especially contemporary music and music by women composers. Joel received a Doctor of Musical Arts in orchestral, choral, and opera conducting from Arizona State University and bachelor's and master's degrees from Brigham Young University.
